DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Cairns

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It's a good hotel in a good location (across the street from the ocean). Our room was not ocean view but was good enough. It was not top of the line by any means and the bathroom was on the small side (closing the bathroom door once in the bathroom is not so easy because of how small the bathroom is). The wifi was also not that strong, but overall, it was a good hotel.

First, all the staff were excellent. The furniture was a bit outdated The air conditioning system was erratic and unreliable. the internet connection was not good and it took a long time to fix it. We finally got a booster. Double-Tree is usually a 4-star hotel but his was more like a 3+/4-.

Very pleasant one nite stay. Would stay again.

A Hilton is a Hilton, is a Hilton... Unlike small no-name hotel outfits that may come in a little easier on the wallet but result in nightmare experiences, At the Doubletree Hilton Cairns, you are welcomed by a friendly, accommodating Front Desk Staff. Our updated and upgraded room was clean and quiet. Both In-room and Resto Dining was excellent. A special thank you goes out to Hotel Management Theo and Elise as well as the warm and friendly Front Desk Host - Tavis. Sue in the Excusrion Planning Department was awesome. She explained all the ins and outs of diving and snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef and set us up with a great Day Package! She rocks! Thanks to all the Staffers and Mgt for contributing to our GBR Bucket List experience!

I would recommend the DoubleTree to anyone who's visiting Cairns. the staff was wonderful. they even changed our room and upgraded it when the door hardware in our original room failed. It's close to everything, even close to a bus stop where you could take public transit to other beaches. And they even play great music in the lounge area!

Excellent location, on the main walk looking out to the ocean but not right in the middle of the bars so it's still calm, quiet and relaxing. The staff were all very helpful and accommodating. There buffet breakfast has a great selection. I would definitely stay here again; great value.

wifi is extra cost, no coffee for free in lobby just water, our room was humid and had a bad (not terrible) smell. Smell lingered throughout stay but humidity got better after a/c all day. Breakfast is $28 per person which is too high. They gave us early check in which was nice. No extra cookies at check out. Room very clean. Overall 3/5.
